My Planted aquarium affected with ICH on cardinal tetras, These 11 tetras are three months old with good color in this tank. Yesterday i added few harlequin rasbora and Rams in my tank, today most of my tetras have ICH, other fishes like rainbow and angel not affected.
Constantly i maintained the temp @24c in my tank, added API stress coat during addition of fish. Weekly i will do 50% RO water change. Today i increased the temp to 28C...help required me to git rid of this ICH without affecting plants.
1. I didn't add aquarium salt because, it may harm the plants.
2. My quarantine tank is 10L volume, I can treat the affected fish...but the ich may come to other fishes, will stay in aquarium ever.
3. Weekly check my PH & nitrate readings...Ph around 6.6 and nitrate around 10PPM

ICH is as common as common cold.. you have already done the right thing by increasing the temp to 28'C, No need to do anything else.
Continue with the same temp for a week even after the symptoms have disappeared..
